About Andrew Terry

My wife and I both live in Buckinghamshire and we bought our house in Bom Sucesso 5 years ago. We have 2 daughters aged 11 and 13 and they love Portugal and have made friends out there. We have other friends who have bought on the resort and we have a brilliant time together. We are always guaranteed a fantastic holiday!

Andrew Terry purchased this house in 2009

Why Andrew Terry chose Vau

We love Portugal and the Silver Coast is still very rustic. There are lots of lovely vineyards to visit and we love Portuguese wine! The people are lovely too and the golf courses excellent. There are lots of things to do too from paddle boarding and kayaking on Lake Obidos which is a 5 minute drive from the house.

What makes this house unique

We always have a very relaxing time in Portugal. The house offers easy living, a lovely climate and there are lots of things to do and see.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family (2 adults with 2 adult children, 2 young children and 1 baby) spent 3 lovely weeks in August/September 2013 in this wonderful villa. The villa is very spacious for our large family, as well as very bright, fully equipped and well maintained. The kitchen had everything necessary, so we spent most of the evenings cooking and eating in rather than going out to restaurants. The kids enjoyed the pool and the garden area. The location is ideal, the area of the golf resort is pleasant and peaceful, the resort is relatively close to the beach, and even if you come without a car, the golf resort provides a shuttle bus that goes to the beach regularly. However, to see the surroundings, such as Obidos, Foz do Arelho, Caldas, Peniche, Sao Martinho etc., it is advisable to rent a car. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We had an unforgettable great holiday and would highly recommend staying in this villa.

Car: recommended


There is a semi private beach which is a 10 minute drive from the resort which has an area for Bom Sucesso guests to use with umbrellas and sun loungers and towels are provided in high season. There is a beach bar which serves snacks, drinks and ice creams in the peak season.


Bom Sucesso is a 50 minute drive from Lisbon airport - we recommend our guests to hire a car.


Medieval town of Obidos is a 20 minute drive.

Caldas de Rainha which has a chocolate factory and shopping centure is also a 20 minute drive.

There are many lovely vineyards to visit in the area.

Further Details:

Bom Sucesso is a lovely complex which offers a couple of restaurants, golf, tennis, communal pool with bar and large children's play area. You can hire bikes to ride around the development. There is also a Hilton Hotel which is due to open soon.

You can go paddleboarding, waterskiiing and windsurfing on the Obidos Lagoon which is a short drive.

Obidos is a medieval town and has market day, numerous extremely old churches and is famous for its Ginja which is an alcoholic drink made with cherries which is served in mini chocolate cups. Depending on which time of year you visit Obidos is host to a chocolate festival which is a big annual event.

There is a supermarket in Obidos but the best ones are in Caldas which is a 20 minute drive. There is a grocery shop in Bom Sucesso for essentials but it is better to go to Caldas as there is more choice and lots of great Portuguese wine.

There is also a chocolate factor in Caldas which you can book a tour.

There is a local equestrian centre which you can book horse riding lessons.

If you require a beach suitable for younger children there is an additional beach at Bom Sucesso (10 minute drive) and also another beach at Foz (25 minutes). Both are on the Obidos lagoon which offers soft sand and shallow calm waters.

Fab villa, quiet location, stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice, both times for a week each. We loved it so much last year we re-booked for 2017.

The villa is immaculately clean, fantastically equipped and has everything you need. Excellent WI-FI with boosters for the whole house (it's a large villa).

You can walk up to the Golf Club house in less than 10 minutes (with 2 kids in tow). Food is nice and setting pretty. Small supermarket on site for essentials when you arrive. (We usually stop at Continente just outside Lisbon. Great supermarkets 10-15 minutes drive away.

Lovely pool and all the rooms (except 2 bathrooms) have views across the pool, lake and golf course.

Villa owner very helpful and friendly. Really recommend. We hope to return.

Great place to stay and relax. Fantastic Pool and an amazing house in an amazing setting.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning place and perfect for families and friends. Cost effective as the supermarkets are cheap as is eating out. You must have a car though as it's a secluded resort but that's perfect! Will return in the future and this is our second stay to date

Classy, well equipped and comfortable - felt like a proper home rather than a rental property!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house with lots of space even though there were 7 of us staying. Comfortable, large sofas, huge TV on which we could stream our Netflix from home. Kitchen extremely well equipped, not just with usual fridge/freezer/ dishwasher and cooker but lots of crockery, glasses and cutlery, as well as cooking tools and pans etc. Separate dining room with seating for large groups, although we mostly ate outside.

Bedrooms comfortable and spacious, 2 en-suites and family bathroom all had great water pressure. Bathroom towels of a good size (better than hotels!) and we were able to refresh them using the laundry room.

Great outdoor furniture, table and chairs for 8 and plenty of loungers and pool towels. Pool was a great size, bigger than normal and situation by golf course lake was lovely.

Resort was a little underwhelming and resort "shop" inadequate, but we shopped in Obidos (great supermarkets) and wanted to spend our time sunning, eating, drinking and didn't really use resort other than a couple of driving range sessions.

If you fancy sufing, worth visitng Perniche for the surf schools and fantastic beach and atmosphere.

Would definitely recommend for large groups/families as large enough to still have your own space in a comfortable and well furnished and decorated house.
